Scholarships and Prizes 2006:
FIEDLER MEMORIAL FUND TRAVEL GRANT: RESEARCH STUDENTSThe Modern Languages Board, on behalf of the Curators of the Taylor Institution, have set aside a non-recurrent allocation from the Fiedler Memorial Fund for the purpose of making small travel grants for research students (both for students who are not eligible for grants from other funds available to the Modern Languages Board, and for students who apply to such funds after these become exhausted for the year). For the current academic year the allocation available for this purpose is not exceeding £1,000 in all.
The Fiedler Memorial Fund exists for the promotion of the advanced study of Modern European Languages and Literatures among members of the University of Oxford, and the costs of publication of the results of their researches, especial consideration being given to German. Any grants made from the sums now set aside would, of course, have to come within these terms.
The Modern Languages Board will not make grants towards the costs of attendance at languages courses, and that the fact that an application has chosen to study in one of the countries concerned will not in itself qualify his or her work for support from the fund.
Those eligible to apply are students for Oxford postgraduate degrees and diplomas (in respect of travel for work for the Oxford degree or diploma concerned).
The Modern Languages Board may take into account any other possible sources of financial support available to applicants.
Applications can be obtained from the Secretary of the Taylor Institution and returned to her at 41 Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JF by Friday of the third week of Hilary Term.
